Please read the following case study and then respond to the questions listed below for this question.

Margaret Wayne works in a 375-bed acute care facility in a large metropolitan area as a Master’s-prepared staff educator. She mentions that her hospital was recently successful in recruiting a large number of new nurses as a result of the implementation of a new salary structure, which was unveiled at a two-day career fair. Margaret has just learned that the new employees (around 40 in total) will be scheduled for general orientation in the coming weeks.

Margaret learned from reviewing the â€New Employee Data Sheets†that were forwarded from human resources that the new employees ranged in age from 19 to 50 and included unlicensed assistive personnel, LPNs, and RNs (with varying backgrounds such as hospital-based diploma school, associate degree, and baccalaureate-prepared graduates). She also discovered that the hospital had hired two clinical nurse specialists and three nurse practitioners. She also pointed out that several members of the group identify as â€Hispanic†and â€Asian.â€

How can Margaret assess the needs of this diverse group of learners, given their educational, age, and ethnic diversity?
Recommend at least three learning strategies that could be useful in communicating information to a group of 40 people.
Explain how cultural, educational, and age-related diversity can be effectively addressed.
